Been a bit since I posted, I guess.
I'll catch you up a bit...
Was really busy with Halloween Stuff until the last minute, but I completed everything which I had realistically hoped to accomplish.
I'll link some pictures rather than post them here, that way if you wish to avoid them, you don't have to click.
Here are pics of my Cthulhu costume:http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs041.snc4/34422_448907925682_514200682_5919490_7688182_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs476.ash2/74932_448908100682_514200682_5919497_3398566_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs494.ash2/76703_448908165682_514200682_5919499_5352454_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs462.ash2/73506_448907550682_514200682_5919476_2441935_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs477.ash2/75021_448907255682_514200682_5919467_5220772_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs931.snc4/74442_448907300682_514200682_5919468_7915044_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1119.snc4/148160_448819601559_658336559_6172165_7477760_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs489.ash2/76221_497091310773_607370773_7183537_5453181_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1143.snc4/148505_497091275773_607370773_7183536_2592339_n.jpg

Here is my friend's Deep One High Priest costume which I made:http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1126.snc4/148892_448405860682_514200682_5911445_5573543_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs056.ash2/36172_163608120326908_100000331629064_362688_71228_n.jpg

On this one, I made the robes (from scratch, no pattern), the hat (same as the robes) and the book (it was a bible once upon a time, now it's a nightmarish HP Lovecraft mythos tome). The facial prosthetic was supplied unpainted from mostlydead.com, and I did the makeup / paint / application for it.
Here are the some pictures of the face prosthetic I made for my friend:http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs892.snc4/72586_497870808202_639348202_7333015_7243269_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs904.snc4/71722_497845153202_639348202_7332072_7521943_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs964.snc4/75716_497851028202_639348202_7332302_650851_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs902.snc4/71526_448907875682_514200682_5919488_6207593_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs807.snc4/68771_1209569777234_1768434061_398713_1698872_n.jpghttp://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs919.snc4/73238_460024677070_756732070_5336985_7882494_n.jpg
This one one on her eye was made from scratch (and applied) by me. The one on her collarbone was store bought.
She made the fingernails herself and they were amazing and gross and awesome.
I had also helped make a plastic shirt thing for my room mate, but I didn't see a picture of it where you could really get a good look, and I didn't really help too much anyhow haha.
We went downtown Halloween night, right at 6th and Red River, as usual. Got there a little later than I would have liked, as usual.
During the course of the night, I saw a fight (it had 6 to 8 people in it) which actually crashed into the side of me. I saw it coming and held on so I didn't get knocked over. I saw a riot (this one had 10 to 16 people in it) in which 6 cops, pepper spray and 2 paddy wagons were deployed to correct the issue.
Weird, considering all these years I've been going down there and never seeing fights or disturbances at all.
They had the streets blocked off differently, maybe that's why...
None of the people involved were wearing costumes.
The first one involved a girl carrying an infant. The second one featured a girl who got pepper sprayed by the cops TWICE! once across her whole face, and once right in the eye. She kept going like a raging beast. Seriously, that shit barely even slowed her down at all. And she was five foot nothing and weighed maybe 110 pounds. She was sort of my hero.
When I was removing my stilts at the end of the night, I got a wicked charlie horse. It was the same leg that the Fighting Morons crashed into but I don't know if that was the ultimate cause or not. It was REALLY bad. Like wanting to scream, roll around and pray to pass out bad. I had to sit on the sidewalk for a spell and recover. It ended up being very swollen, and I could not touch it or put any weight on it for 2 days.
Not really sure what happened there, but it's better now. I usually heal pretty fast though.
After that, my friend got in a car crash which sucks, but I think it's all going to be alright in the long run, and no one was injured.
Going to see Paranormal Activity 2 at Alamo Lakecreek tonight at 7:50 if anyone else will be there or whatever.
Tomorrow, waking up at the crack of early to road trip to east Texas and go to the Texas Renaissance Festival. after that, we're driving another 1.5 hours east to camp out in a haunted swamp. Complete with Native American Burial Grounds and lots of Bigfoot sightings.
Should be an awesome time!
I'm sure there's a million things on my mind, but this is already longer than anyone will read, so I'll post it now.
